    I THINK it's an Abe Rivera bass. www.aberivera.com .

    Not sure about the history of it, but I know it had something to do with Jerry Jemmott. Hope that's some help!

    Well, that should put an end to all the people saying "Jaco only had four strings"!
     
  5. WHOA, when was it that Jaco Used a 5 string?

    Funny, I went to the site and on the first page it says '...instruments ARE played by...' and lists Jaco last. Didn't know he was still playing...

    :)Who knows. If Jaco were still alive, he might be playing 7 stringers. I kinda doubt it though.

    I Never knew Jaco played on a 5-string.. But it doesn't look like a "jaco Bass" to me.. but if he played it. maybe it is a "Jaco Bass"
